    I had never done any kind of scrapbooking but I knew I wanted to do something special for my sisters 50th birthday because she made mine such a special day...I thought about what I could do with my limited resources and I thought a scrapbook would be something she would love..I was surfing the net and found a scrapbook program and bought it..and used it for making her Scrapbook...she loved it and it was a big hit so decided to make one for Sarah Grace and her dance recitial pictures..that turned out great too..then I started on a big one for Jake for graduation..starting when he was born..one day I ran across SBM and downloaded the trial version and posted some of the pages from Jakes book and sent the link to Cathy so she could see them...well next thing I knew I checked my email and my wonderful sister had bought me the SBM program..and well you know the rest of the story..now its a ritiual for Cathy.. she gets up in the mornings and gets her coffee and looks at SBM for new pages..she says she knows when I dont feel good because there are no new pages...Since then Ive come a long way in digital scrapbooking..Im now offically an addict...and Ive learned to use several programs like Adobe and photo shop and loving it more and more...and the best and most wonderful part of everything are the forums and the wonderful friends I have made at SBM..I will treasure that for the rest of my life..and my fabulous sister who is my everything..love you sis..and thanks again

    I actually found ScrapbookMax! at a flea market in the Cincinnati Ohio area. Dottie was the lady set up and the pages looked wonderful. I was able to talk with her for awhile, not as long as I would have liked, with the men with us, you just kind of look and keep moving. I walked away and then came back and talked with her a little longer and I was sold! I had made cards with Hallmark card maker programs and had another card making program as well. So when I put this on my computer and was able to click here, click there, add an embellishment here and a shadow there, I thought WOW! how easy. I really love the ease of the program and would very much like to learn more about making my own items so I can share with everyone here because of all the help I have received since jumping in here a month or so ago. The constant mention in this thread about how helpful this forum is
    is so true. Everyone is so helpful. This is my first time in a forum and it is so much fun. Thank you ScrapbookMax! and all you wonderful people.
    Happy Scrappin'! Susie

    One day I bought some wonderful colored vintage papers for regular manual scrapbooking and paid a fortune for that. The result was not what I was thinking and, besides, I didn't like to cut my printed photos. Then I asked myself: why doesn't someone create a program to make digital scrapbooking? Silly me. I went to the Internet and discovered that it was already been invented. :-)

    The first program I saw was SMB and I immediately downloaded the trial version. I loved it and bought it immediately. Before that I used Photoshop for my photo composition needs, now I use SMB every time it is possible.

    I believe the trial version is fundamental in the buying decision.

    The only thing that I believe it is missing is a resource to place a shadow on fonts (captions and legend). I have a trick to do this, but it takes more time.

    Neverthless, I'm very happy to be party of this community, where we can learn with specialists!

    I stumbled upon digital scrapbooking completely by accident. I have four daughters. One day the one that is a senior in high school was hanging out with me and we were surfing the blogs of the national student officers of an organization that we are involved in. Five of the six were simply line after line of text. The sixth was done with digital scrapbook pages and so much more interesting to look at and read. We went to google and started searching. We found several online programs, but none of them seemed to have the flexibility for creativity that we were looking for and if they did, there was no way to save a copy of your work. We found scrapbook max and downloaded the trial version - after playing for a few hours, we were sold. Since purchasing, I've now got my college daughter and the senior in high school hooked.

    This forum and the community here make a huge difference, it's so nice to have folks willing to answer all my silly questions!
